The recent economic crisis challenged European integration and strengthened Eurosceptic political parties in national and European elections. The EU’s response to the crisis seems to give rise a wide range of social, economic and political issues, that this doctoral seminar aims at exploring. It welcomes papers that address the topic from various angles – the efficiency of EU institutions’ responses to the crisis, their impact on the legitimacy of the EU political system and the dynamics of integration, electoral trust and mistrust in the European Union, the impact of policy changes on recent and future enlargement. The convenors of the doctoral seminar are Professors Renaud Dehousse from the Centre d’études européennes at Sciences Po and Wolfgang Wessels, Jean Monnet Chair, University of Cologne. The application deadline was June 15, 2014. More information here.
